Face to face with renewable heating experts

Renewable Heating Hub YouTube Channel

We are excited to announce that Renewable Heating Hub will be launching a YouTube channel in September. To kick off the launch we are going to have an interview series where we will speak to industry leaders and high-profile experts. We have already lined up and confirmed our first 10 guests who are some of the industry’s most renowned and respected professionals and installers.

Given the recent media attention, the purpose of the channel will be to provide homeowners and consumers with an objective source of information and an opportunity to address questions and concerns that are being widely discussed at the moment. We will also be discussing the future of renewable heating in homes and getting the experts to share their tips and insights with us.

We want our audience to be involved as much as possible and for this to be an opportunity for us to put forward your questions to the experts. If you have any burning questions, concerns or worries about renewable heating please send them to us now so that we can try to include as many of them as possible in our interviews: editor@renewableheatinghub.co.uk

Our first interview will be posted in September, and the date will be confirmed soon.

If you don’t want to miss any of the episodes, please head over to our YouTube channel now and subscribe. Your support would be massively appreciated.

Hi, I live in the S. of France in the Cevennes and though that sounds like it should be warm, its not always true, and french tradesmen can screw up most things!

I have a Hitachi 14kw (model 5) air source heat pump for which the doc. shows a noise level of 50 dba audio. I’ve measured up to 72 dba (4 times the perceived sound) and as the installer said the ventilater unit couldn’t be more than 15 meters from the central unit he put it on a cement block he made attached to the wall of the house. Result: vibrations in the house and unacceptable noise when the night temperature is less than 5°C. The manufacturer writes that the units can be up to 75 metres appart!

We changed 3 phase electricity for mono 45 kw, which we have now changed to 60 kw, the max. that EDF will supply us with!
Unfortunately the machine can require up to 75 kw when the temp falls below -7° C (which it did in Jan. of this year) requiring me to get up 5 times in one night and 6 the next to rebranch the electric supply to the house! No solution in sight for the moment.

For the dirt problem in your episode 6 broadcast, I have a Caleffi dirt seperator with magnet in our radiator circuit, and 2 years after the installation no problems of dirt to date!

Our ashp also heats the water and when installed we had a noise problem in the hot water circuit. (Effet belier in french.) This lasted 10 months when a technician sent by Hitachi to change a compresser, resolved the problem; a protective anode in the hot water tank was too long as we have soft water in the region; He cut 20cm off the anode, leaving about 8 , and the problem was solved. A shame that the installer hadn’t read the manuel! and had never tested the water!

To resolve our remaining problems with the ASHP I have had to instruct a lawyer! Will try and keep you up to date with the out come!
